I remember the first time I laid eyes on a Petunia Pickle Bottom bag. A local boutique downtown was having a "grand re-opening" of their store; the boutique now had a new location, in the neatest old building ... gorgeous architecture, high ceilings with the original duct work and wiring exposed ... oh, I could so live in this space! I was moseying around - and found myself in the children's section. I do not yet have any children, but I have always loved looking through the children's department anyway. That's when I saw her. A Cake Society Satchel. At first, it did not strike me as a diaper bag at all! It was way too gorgeous to be a diaper bag, right?! Wrong.
It is a diaper bag. A fashionable diaper bag. A designer diaper bag ... a diaper bag who doesn't scream, "I am toting a breast-pump, pacis, wipes and dipes, and a change of clothes."
But, like I said ... I don't have any kids. But. I still loved it. I could use this to tote my things to and from school, or use as a carry-on. Sounds crazy, but I've had this bag on my mind since first seeing it that night a few years ago.

(some on the outside & inside ... plus a place to clip your keys) - ranging in sizes - from bottle storage to a nifty cell phone pocket that is actually inside another pocket!
Petunia also keeps her self from yucky bathroom stall floors - because she has lovely little feet!
so cute, right?
Did you happen to notice the zipper around the bottom of Petunia? Well, that is in place to conceal the
But wait! That's not all! Petunia has a few tricks up her sleeve ... she can quickly convert to a backpack diaper bag or clip on to your stroller thanks to the included valet hooks & shoulder straps.
While this particular bag is practically perfect in every way for my taste: shabby chic with vintage-y flair ... if you prefer something a bit more modern, Petunia Pickle Bottom has some lovely, more modern diaper bags too!
Thank you oh so much, Petunia Pickle Bottom for allowing me to welcome Petunia into my home. I will take great care of her, I promise.
